Fashionable Animals, by Miguel Vallinas

In his long-running portrait series Second Skins, artist Miguel Vallinas uses photographic portraits of wildlife as a starting point to construct fictional wardrobes that he imagines each animal might wear if it were dressed as a human.

Vallinas has an uncanny ability to select the perfect colors and textures for each outfit he photographs, bestowing the animals with a clear sense of character and an unusual authenticity.

On the surface, Second Skins is a humorous series of portraits guaranteed for a smile, but dig a bit deeper and Vallinas suggests the images reveal a more about human nature than the animal kingdom.

Specifically, how we perceive people based on appearance and how we create narratives in our mind based wholly on what we see. Vallinas says he is also examining elements of self-perception, specifically β€œwhat we believe we are, what others think we are, what we really are, and what we would like to be.” You can see much more on his website.

And you? How do you perceive animals? Do you look at them as food? Although they may not express their individuality with their accessories, every animal is very much an individual, sentient being.
